I think about Jennifer Lopez’s good looks approximately five times a week. The 51-year-old beauty icon is positively ageless, and she’s well-known throughout the world for her flawless, radiant skin that’s earned its own (catchy) nickname: the JLo glow. This phrase applies not only to how her skin literally glows but also to the star’s confidence and natural beauty.
Lopez released her first fragrance, glow, in 2002. Now, nearly two decades later, she’s coming out with her first skincare collection called JLo Beauty. It’s the result of “years of passion and hundreds of trials later,” with the mission of delivering the essentials that fans need to look and feel their best—no matter their age.
The Hustlers star teased the line for the first time in August, with a selfie looking glamorous and glowy. Naturally, fans went wild with the need to know more, but she withheld that information until now. On Wednesday, December 3, Lopez teased the full line, comprised of eight skincare must-haves.
Finally, after all of these years, Lopez is divulging her biggest secrets to keeping her skin looking so youthful. One of them was taught to Lopez by her mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez. “My mom used to say that olive oil was the cure-all for everything,” Lopez reveals in a brand statement. “And it’s a secret I’ve used over the years because it really does work. So, when we went to do this, that was the first thing I said: It has to have olive oil extract as a basis.”
That’s precisely the mindset that inspired the JLo Beauty Olive Complex: a four-part blend comprised of squalane, fermented olive oil, extra-virgin olive oil, and olive leaf extract. This formula is present in the majority of the JLo Beauty skincare products.
Besides using her skincare products, the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” hitmaker swears by “the five s’s”: sleep, sunscreen, serum, supplements, and sano (the latter comes from the Spanish phrase “vivir san,” which means “living healthy”).
That said, her glow is also the result of her über healthy lifestyle. She doesn’t drink or smoke, and eats healthy, exercises, and drinks lots of water. And as mentioned in her “five s’s,” sleep is major, too. “Ideally, I would love to get nine or 10 hours of sleep, Lopez told InStyle in 2016. “But either way, I always make sure I get at least eight.”
If you’re frowning at the thought of giving up your Friday night cocktail in pursuit of the JLo glow, I’m right there with you. But fear not: the good news is that her products are clinically shown to deliver all-day moisturizing and glow. Plus, they are loaded with antioxidant protection to protect you from damage, wrinkles, and fine lines caused by free radicals.
Finally, Lopez’s new line is more than just a profit-making endeavor; it’s a way for her to help other women find their confidence and strength, and it’s what she calls “deeply meaningful.” In a promotional video for the line, Lopez shared her inspiring aging philosophy and how it’s impacted her life:
“As women, people are so ready to write us off. I just kept waiting for that to happen and then I realized no, I’m not going to let that happen. It’s about being limitless, it’s about being powerful, and understanding beauty really doesn’t have an expiration date.”
